Music at St Mary’s

St Mary's Church,
Church Street,
Sturminster Newton,
DT10 1DB


At St Mary’s church we host a series of around four lunchtime organ, instrumental or choral recitals throughout the year usually on Mondays starting at 12.15pm and one evening concert starting at 7.30pm, all of which benefit from excellent acoustics.

Over the years we have had a number of celebrated organists from both overseas and national cathedrals and churches from around the country.

We at St Mary’s are proud to host regular events such as the internationally acclaimed UK Boogie Woogie Festival, Sturminster Newton Choral Society and more recently the Sturminster Newton Literary Festival.

Facilities available include a Yamaha Grand Piano, a magnificent Hele of Plymouth organ, staging system and a basic PA system. Our well equipped church hall is also available.  Hire costs for both church and hall are available on request.
